Resources for Educators

STEMCAP seeks out articles that expand beyond students’ typical textbook style readings and highlight the cutting-edge research that comes out of current on-going science.

Looking for scientific readings and activities at your students’ reading level? These websites provide a variety of science content aimed at a wide range of reading levels. Some sites even provide alternate versions of readings that lower the reading level so students in your class can read the same article even if they are a little behind the level of the rest of the class.

This article and activity sheet were produced for STEMCAP by Futurum, a magazine and online platform aimed at inspiring young people to pursue careers in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) and SHAPE (social sciences, humanities, and the arts for people and the economy).
